to ask the big oil companies to give up one dime not one dime of their $4 billion annual subsidy. they have refused to ask big corporations to give up one dime in their corporate loopholes. what we are negotiating with is a group of people who won't compromise. a group of people who have said we want the middle class to pay more taxes so that big corporations can pay less. we want seniors to lose their medicare so that big oil companies can continue to foost on their subdis. that's what the problem is. >> the case that republicans have taken a hard line on talks, at the same time democrats are taking what sounds like a hard line on entitlements. let me read a statement from leader pelosi that says we continue to oppose benefit cuts in social security and medicare. these pillars should not be used a as piggy bank to subsidize tax cuts for the wealthy. are democrats not just as guilty of failing to compromise as republicans are in this case? >> no, absolutely not. what we have said and i think most americans would agree with this is the middle class and seniors should not be asked
we are expecting what i think are unreasonable expectations. i'm a big believer in the jury system. i dedicated my professional career to it and i think it is the best system there is. >> bill: there is no other system. >> with that people have to go back and say what is realistic. prove beyond a reasonable doubt is not to a mat mathematical certainty. it is to a reasonable doubt. look at what is reasonable here. look at that cause of death. is there any reasonable doubt that this girl was murdered? >> bill: no. >> whether it was a premeditated murder or her mother was trying to quiet her. >> bill: if the little girl drown as i think one of anthony's attorneys said happened, you don't put duct tape over a drowned girl's mouth so that is out the window. you are not responsible for the the defense lawyers, you are not. these people introduce all kinds of crazy stuff they couldn't back up like i said in the talking points memo. weren't you offended as an american who wants justice for caylee anthony? weren't you offended by that? i was offended by that. >> a lot of the things that jose b
, and maria. big congratulations to all of them. >> great to see that. al has the morning off. let's get the weather from the weather channel's maria la rosa. >> here at home, the weather is quiet, at least for now. as we head into the afternoon, a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms. otherwise, partly cloudy. >>> willie, back to you. >> maria, thanks. >>> new details this morning about the apparent unraveling of the sexual assault case against former imf chief dominick strauss-kahn. this just days after he was suddenly released from house arrest. nbc's jeff rossen is with us with more. jeff, good morning. >> willie, good morning to you. he really hit the town this weekend. literally overnight dominick strauss-kahn went from ankle bracelets to freedom. he can go anywhere he wants in the country but yet he remains in new york near the scene of the alleged crime. this morning we're learning more about the case and hotel made sto maid story. within hours of his release, dominick strauss-kahn flashed a smile and took his wife to dinner. the man who sat in a kril at rikers as an ac
to judgment. but clearly and admittedly the d.a. has big problems with this case, fred. >> susan, what has strauss-kahn been doing now that his house arrest, so to speak, is over? has he left the premises? have you seen anything about what his day-to-day is now going to be like? >> reporter: well, it's become a real media scene as it has been from the start. you can see over my shoulder a ring of photographers. that was prompted because a little while ago, someone went inside. and so the thought is, maybe they'll be leaving. there's certainly no reason for them to live in this location anymore now that he's been released on his own recognizance. he doesn't have his passport back. but he can move about the city and move about as long as he makes sure he's back for his next court case. we saw a busload of senior citizens snapping photos as they passed by this very short street. we know he went out for dinner last night. he and his wife went out to a restaurant to have dinner and cameras, of course, pictured him when he came back in. but certainly his legal team and sources have said, perhaps
about today. the jury in the casey anthony murder trial got a big job to do this holiday. deliberations are expected to begin in a few more hours. first, the prosecution has some rebutting to do. the defense claims the state did not prove that case say anthony killed her daughter caylee but they played with the jury's emotions. >> you see the strategy behind that is, is if you hate her, if you think she's a lying, no good slut, then you will start to look at this evidence in a different light. you will start to, oh, wait a minute, maybe i'm seeing something that's not there and start to actually discriminate against her rather than give her the standard that is afforded to each and every citizen in our country. >> the trial in orlando gets under way at 8:30 eastern. the judge warned the jury today will be a long way for them. >>> fox news politics on twitter, someone has clearly hacked the twitter handle. the site is putting up all kinds of insane, inappropriate and untrue tweets about president obama. basically april fool's type stuff that isn't funny. we reached out to fox and twitter
by suicide. let's talk about this change with chris lawrence. >> reporter: this is a fairly big change. even though, graptnted, only affect a small number of troops who commit suicide. still, ongoing fight in the military and outside the military among families to sort of destigmatize suicide. i think if you listen to the president's statement, that is exactly what this was designed to do. , to sort of, you know, put suicide in a different light. the interesting thing about it was the president had commissioned this review of this policy before making the decision. he said the review was exhaustive, it was tough. which suggests that in some level, there was, you know, some pushback and we look more into that throughout the day to find out exactly maybe where the pushback was and why the folks who didn't want this change, why they felt that way as well. >> as we know, suicide has become a really sad reality within these two wars. chris, thanks. >>> republicans in the nation's first primary state weighing in with their picks with the primary candidates. jim acosta is joining us with a new poll
to happen here with rupert murdoch and his son james tomorrow? >> well, that is certainly, that is the big question. and rupert murdoch and his son james, and rebekah brooks, who are appearing before the select committee have to be so careful, and so careful in fact, that rupert murdoch's biographers saying he is in rehearsals and being coached by aides and he is walking a fine line, because on one hand, he is under oath, and so like he and his son and rebekah brooks, they can't lie. if they do lie, it is a crime. so they have to be careful what they say. they can't mislead this group, but at the same time, they don't want to give too much away either, because this is such a reprehensible difficult and negative story that any facts on how to what extent the criminality of how far it went up the ladder at any of the companies as the facts come out, it could well, we could well see a drop from the bottom just out of news corporation. today, already, tamron, we saw a 5% jump in news corp stock in australia. so that the wheels of this amazing story just keep rolling along, and you mentioned in
of oil in the area. one of the big issues we have in this area, you have a wonderful fi fish, a trout that happens to be a surface feeder. when they go up to the higher surface of the water, it interacts with the oil and that can cause a lot of damage. very swift moving river. it will help break up the oil, which will make it much easier to disperse. bad and good news mixed in. back to you. >> reynolds, thank you very much. >> you bet. >>> no holiday if you're running for the white house. paul steinhauser is joining us. >> you're working. i'm working. >> they might as well work. >> it's a good day to do it, too. a lot of parades and events. they're going to all those important early voting states. take a look at the map. michele bachman, newt gingrich, rick santorum, where will they be? iowa. mitt romney and jon huntsman will be marching in the same parade in new hampshire. herman cain will be at philadelphia's hall. no holiday at all, as you said, for the presidential candidates, kyra. >>> speaking of the fourth of july, it seems a lot of americans need to go back to school. >> yeah,
house back to the table, back to talking about something big. now, look, we still got a long ways to go. it's a weekend of sales jobs going on right now that actually began last night when the president had the congressional democratic leadership over to start talking turkey. so that brings us to the other sticking point, the actual substance. everybody has to figure out what to cut. this isn't going to be as easy as folks think and both sides are moving toward a deal that would include a trigger to assure mutually destructive politically when it comes to the two big items being kicked to committees or joint committees and that's still being figured out, tax and entitlements. one incentive plan would kill bush tax cuts for the rich and key portions of the new health care law if somehow the reforms for the tax code and social security and medicare weren't agreed to and implemented by january 1st, 2013. the question is, is the penalty on the bush tax cuts sort of the idea that you're kicking this down, is that going to be enough to assuage some democrats who believe there's too many cuts
this thing started last sunday. as you say, the president has said he wants this big deal, but this thing broke up today. the meeting ended with the president telling these leader toss go back to their members and ask them what do they think can pass and then report back to the president with something that they believe can pass by this saturday morning. they're not even having a meeting tomorrow. now, despite all that, i am told by my sources that there's not a lot of optimism that this particular negotiating process here at the white house is going to actually end up lead together real deal, and a lot of effort and attention is now turning to a different process that's happening in the u.s. senate and another all the ate deal that's being worked out between the two senate leaders that could instead end up raising the debt ceiling. a lot of hope is centered there, anderson. >> basically what is that deal, that negotiation based on? harry reid and mitch mcconnell? >> reid-mcconnell deal. it would effectively raise the debt ceiling in a negative vote which would allow for spending cuts tha
: the last 48 hours this investigation has gone from about this big to this big. some officials may have already been caught lying. not only that, now we're told u.s. wasn't just helping send guns to mexico, taxpayers paid for some of those guns. and more than one federal agency knew about it. that's the latest in the scandal we know as fast and furious. according to sources an f.b.i. informant allegedly used taxpayer money to buy guns on behalf of the cartels, the f.b.i. knew it, they allowed it to happen and they failed to tell congress or the agency that was investigating him, causing that agency, the atf to spend two years, thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars pursuing information the f.b.i. already had about a man, the atf would never be allowed to arrest because he worked for the f.b.i. this information was confirmed this week sources say by the acting atf director ken nelson who met secretly on july 4th with congressman darrell issa and senator charles grassley. nelson who is going to be the fall guy in this scandal dropped a few bombs in his deposition indicating others
. bill: he says you can take care of the debt ceiling one vote. but that leaves a big problem and that's the debt. >> it's the debt itself. i couldn't agree more. the crisis comes, bill, not if we don't pass the debt ceiling, but if we do pass a debt ceiling it send a signal to the financial markets around the world that the united states is not capable of dealing with this enormous debt. that's the crisis. if we don't get a credible plan that brings the deficit spending down over the next two years and the president has been holding out on that. bill: do you think the markets will be spooked by that? >> you are exactly right. even as moody's and s & p said they will downgrade the debt. you would expect for the interest rate on those bonds to go up but the last couple weeks they have gone down. we cast a carte blanche $2.5 trillion increase in the debt i believe that could cause a financial panic. bill: that forces the markets to quiver. >> this is the ultimate point of leverage. that's why there has been a stalemate. republicans said if we cave on this we'll never get serious about sp
brewer, covering the big news from coast to coast. the big story today, casey anthony will be out of jail in less than one week. moments ago, we learned the florida mother acquitted of murdering her own 2-year-old daughter will be released next wednesday, july 13th. on tuesday, she was convicted on all counts of lying to police. this morning, judge belvin perry announced what that would cost her. >> i will sentence you to one year in the orange county jail, imposing a $1,000 fine on each count. all four counts to run consecutive to each other, giving you credit for the time that you have previously served. >> that credit amounted to just over 1,000 days. let's go live now to orlando. nbc is outside the courthouse with the very latest on what has happened this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, richard. that was six days short of the worst case scenario for those protesters that gathered around this morning outside the courtroom. certainly not comforting, not even six weeks or six months, not even six years is anywhere near what they wanted or what they consid

their candidates. >> we will stand, because we serve a faithful god. >> i think it's a big mistake for governor romney. >> there's a move afoot to try to blame george w. bush. >> to make an informed decision and then come back to talk to us. >> good evening from washington. two week's notice, that's what president obama gave congressional republicans late today, two weeks to reach an agreement on deficit reduction and raising the debt ceiling to avoid what would likely be a catastrophic default. the president said he won't accept a short-term deal and invited republican leaders to join his previously-scheduled meeting with democrats on thursday. he restated this is an opportunity to "do something big to reduce the debt." >> to get there, i believe we need a balanced approach. we need to take on spending in domestic programs, in defense programs, in entitlement programs, and we need to take on spending in the tax code. spending on certain tax breaks and deductions for the wealthiest of americans. this will require both parties to get out of our comfort zones, and both parties to agree on real co
them and this one will leave a big bite mark. >> is that a valid excuse? that maybe some staffer read it? >> i find that mind-boggling. such a statement would scream out to you as just incredibly wrong. that you cannot -- if you are a first-year student in high school and you read that statement, that's got to send up some alarms to you that says -- wait a minute. we can't sign this sort of thing. and particularly, not so much probably in the republican primary. if she does get into the general election, this sort of thing with independent voters just kills you dead. it's a nonstarter because it's such a fringe sort of way of thinking of things. >> it's also interesting that -- >> i would say that's probably why they didn't look at it. because i agree with you. had i read this and any of the republicans i talked to, they would say -- what the heck is this? i just think someone wasn't paying attention when they were doing their job. >> even in the explanation this group has put out, where retracted it, they did the classic -- this can be -- i'm sorry if you misconstrued this. they're n

for big businesses. >> if everybody else is willing to take on their sacred cows, i think it would be hard for the republicans to stand there and say that the tax break for corporate jets is sufficiently important. >> reporter: republican senator john cornyn fired back. >> what i'm concerned about is the president by not seriously putting a proposal forward but rather just criticizing those who have, will run it up against the deadline. >> reporter: meanwhile the people vying for the president's jobber were also hard at work this weekend. former utah governor jon huntsman barn stormed in new hampshire, which hosts the nation's first primary. minnesota representative michele bachmann was out in full force in iowa, six weeks ahead of the state's straw poll. she is running neck and neck with presumed front runner mitt romney, according to a recent state poll, and this weekend she tried to build on that nmomentu. lesser known candidate businessman herman cain, also tried to shore up support in the hawk why state, stumping at a godfather pizza, the company he used to run. the seoul african-amer

be drawn there from. now, the big question is will the defense bring up again those claims that casey anthony was molested by her father and brother to explain her behavior and her lying regardless of the fact we've heard little evidence to support these claims. this, we will hear tomorrow. >> and with the rebuttle case, who did they call to the stand? >> we know that one of the most important pieces for the state's case is to prove that this was a premeditated murder. the premeditation charge was challenged when we heard cindy anthony on the stand last week saying that she was reasonable for searching chloroform, neck breaking and a series of other rather incriminating items on the household computer and so, the prosecution brought in yesterday a series of witnesses, one of which was an officer at her company who could prove according to her time sheets, that she was at work and not at home when those suspicious searches for being made. there was also a challenge to dr. spitz' opinion. he was brought in by the defense, that the autopsy made on caylee's body was shoddy. so that's what

us say good morning to reynolds wolf here now. big holiday weekend. you have the eye on the weather but also fireworks. isn't it illegal --? >> some states, depends on where you are. some states in our country where you can have almost like an arsenal, shoulder rocket missile and hey, fourth of july, let's go. you have to use common sense out there. we tell the story every year of people getting out there being careless and get hurt. supposed to be a festive wonderful holiday but people get a little careless, according to the u.s. consumer product safety commission there were three fireworks related deaths and again, it happened all last year. more than 8500 people had to be taken to the emergency room because of firework injuries. some of the tips to prevent things from happening to you or your family. >> and this is amazing to hear 8500 people are injured with fireworks. but here are some of the things. kind of common sense don't allow young children to play with or ignite the fireworks. always have an adult supervise the fireworks activities. sparklers seem innocent enough but ca
. and they feel that the democrats have an ideological commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along -- i agree with you i think he could have -- the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big deal for a party that all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually end up getting what they wanted and what they wanted never materializes. >> there's a big difference between that and nothing. >> i agree.

[unintelligible] host: do you think that this is a big deal at all? in aer: in a way, yes, and a way, no. he is a nice man, but he is too old. it takes a man that this young to do something like that host: do you think you could run all of those companies? caller: me? i am a painter. host: i know. i have your painting in my office. caller: my wife is looking at me and telling me to tell you good morning. host: good morning. send me your e-mail address and i will send you a picture of it in profit -- in my office. caller: listen, my wife's birthday is tomorrow, she turned 81. host: that is right. you married an older woman. mr. peterson, you enjoy that heat wave in texas. we have got to get moving. we appreciate it. this would message, regarding the phone hacking scandal -- host: mike is a republican in arizona. hello. caller: i can see this going on in great britain, i guess the police are involved. but then they are doing it for us in the same manner. scanning e-mails, looking for certain words and what ever. i do not see any difference. i mean, they are exchanging inform
. there's supposedly meetings between the white house and senate and big game players later this beak. in erms the of a deal we're getting a real date, not necessarily august 2nd, but july 22nd. why? there's a ten-day period needed for the congressional budget office to score any type of compromise as well as you're going to have to sell this compromise to the members. house republicans have been steadfast they don't want any tax increases to consider any type of compromise. speaker boehner needs some time to sell that to his members. >> you're talking about political high ground. you're not talking about the substance. i want to ask you about libya. there is a procedural vote the first step on the kerry-minnesota cane resolution on libya what do you see there? >> it's around 5:30 p.m. today. it really is a procedural vote on the mccain-kerry libya resolution which says for one year the u.s. should allow -- there should be force in libya, u.s. backed force with no ground troops. to one democratic aide said they really don't know how this vote the going to come come out. there is specu
